The longitudinal course of subjective and objective neuropsychological functioning, psychological functioning, disability level, and employment status in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) was examined. The relations among several key outcomes at follow-up, as well as the baseline characteristics that predict change (e.g., improvement), were also evaluated. The(More)
Potassium embelate, 2,5-dihydroxy, 3-undecyl-1, 4-benzoquinone, from Embelia ribes Burm. was subjected to toxicity evaluation which included subacute, chronic, reproductive toxicity testing and teratological investigations in laboratory animals (mice, rats and monkeys). The results did not indicate adverse effects suggesting that potassium embelate is a(More)

Trans-anethole was studied for antifertility activity in rats at dose levels of 50 mg, 70 mg and 80 mg/kg po. Dose-dependent activity was observed, a 100% anti-implantation activity being achieved at 80 mg/kg, po. The compound showed a significant estrogenic activity and did not possess anti-estrogenic, progestational, anti-progestational, androgenic or(More)
Some features of the natural history of malaria in holoendemic areas can be explained by the presence of acquired immunity. There is also evidence that transmission of humoral antibodies in utero from the immune mother plays some part in the transient protection of the offspring. Little is known about the importance of a genetic factor.The possibility of(More)
AIM To search for female contraceptive agents. METHODS 2-Hydroxy-3-methyl-1, 4-naphthoquinone monosemicarbazone (HMNQS) and 2-hydroxy-1, 4-naphthoquinone monothiosemicarbazone (HNQTS) were screened for anti-implantation activity in rats. RESULTS Both compounds showed a dose-dependent activity, and HNQTS was more potent. An 100% anti-implantation(More)
Deficiency of wheat grain iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) is common nutritional problem in the developing countries and thus increasing their concentrations is a major challenge. Field experiments were conducted to investigate the effect of different levels of fertilizer nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium (100–200 % NPK) and foliar Fe application (3 % FeSO4.7H2O at(More)
